Qudexy XR

@Topamax vs Quidexy XL anyone have their child on either of these? Is losing hair a side effect and is this drug a better option for energy during the school day?
Thanks

Trokendi Xr Or Quedexy

Trokendi Xr Or Quedexy

My daughter has epilepsy, doctors don't seem to truly listen to her symptoms. We had a great dr but she retired. Since then we seen at least 1/2 dozen each saying that's the wrong meds try this try that. The area affected is around frontal lobe. She has absence, drop, gram mal.

Vimpat

Vimpat

I was put on vimpat a few months ago
In the hopes of weaning off of topamax all together since topamax is not safe with pregnancy. Since starting vimpat I have been feeling extremely tired and just not like myself at all. It has not gotten rid of my seizures at night so my nuerologist wants to keep me on it a bit longer to see if it will kick in. Does anyone have experience with this medication and know how long it took to get rid of seizures/what dosage? Did the side effects get better?

Thanks

Vimpat is an enhancer as well. So it also made the Topomax a little more. It does make you really sleepy. It also was the slowest one I ever took to adjust! I was starting to get impatient until it… read more

Over the course of one year, ive had very random events of these surges of first pins and needle pains in my legs.

Does Anyone Use Vimpat And Have Success With It?

Does Anyone Use Vimpat And Have Success With It?

I am so depressed and lethargic from taking it. I cry a lot and am lifeless. Bad headaches and very light headed. Dizzy all the time.

I hated it. I couldn’t eat for weeks because it made me so nauseous. I was so weak and lost a lot of weight. Begged my dr to take me off it.

Sodium Level Low

Sodium Level Low

I am on Keppra xr 3500mg and tegretol xr 1600mg. 3 months ago my sodium level was 134 now it's 128. I was wondering if that sodium level was dangerous at all to my health. My doctor lowered my tegretol to 1400. Has anyone had any experience like that?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Not me personal but I would bring my concerns up when you've your next doctor's and neurologist appointments. To talk with them about the best move in your specific situation.

Zonegram Experiences And Side Effects

Zonegram Experiences And Side Effects

Hi, I keep reading really bad things about Zonegran side effects, I was supposed to start last week, but keep postponing. I usually get 1-2 nocturnal seizures every 2-3 months, so I’m not sure if it’s even worth the change (currently on Tegretol). I would really appreciate if anybody could share their personal experiences and or effects with this med. Thanks 🙏

Dilantin

Dilantin

I took Dilantin for a few years as a child. I'm not sure why my doctor switched me from Dilantin to Tegretol, but I'm assuming it's because I broke through on it. I really liked it, but I suppose what I'm on now is best for controlling my seizures.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Since then, I've been on numerous forms of Tegretol,, Tranxene for a short time, and currently, Leviteracetam(Keppra, in addition to Tegretol). Chelsey, what does VNS stand for?
